Alliance Woman Gets Probation, Ordered to Pay Restitution for Money Stolen from Rodeo Committee


An Alliance woman has been given probation and ordered to pay back back money she stole from the Alliance Cattle Capital Rodeo Committee.

Tera Gasseling, 40, was sentenced Tuesday in Box Butte County District Court after reaching a deal with prosecutors in March. Gasseling pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted theft after taking nearly $3,000 from the committee.

In addition to 18 months of probation, Gasseling must make restitution for the money she took between January 2011 and March 2012.
